Soil Testing Basics Presentation

Join ISUEO Field Agronomist, Rebecca Ahlers, to learn how to sample soil for testing.  She’ll indicate what these test results mean on Monday, September 12 at 6 pm at the Mahaska County Extension office, 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa.  This presentation is for anyone wishing to learn about soil testing; farmers and gardeners.


While Iowa soil is often very fertile; however, specific locations, may have conditions which can be improved with proper supplemental fertilization.  Proper soil sampling insures accurate  results leading to improved soil fertility.  With soil test results, farmers and gardeners alike can fertilize to their soil and crop’s needs.
